and i can work together. the election is over. now it's time to get to work. >> so talk, soledad, of working to the. but you might say speaker boehner has said tax rates for the wealthy can't go up. they're at 35% right now. they're scheduled to go up above 39% by the end of the year. then you say president obama said he will veto anything that does not increase tax rates on wealthy americans. you wonder where is the middle ground there? the middle ground, it appears, and we don't know the details on this, would be moving towards a framework on tax reform. you know right now, even a lot of people who might fall under that 35% tax rate, income bracket, they don't pay that. that's not their effective rate. so if you simplify the tax code. maybe some of the change comes out in the wash. you could actually increase revenue. increase tax dollars without changing that tax rate. we don't know the details, though. and they really have to be worked out and this week is really the start of that process. >> the sound of that ticking would be the clock of the fiscal cliff clock that we're monito

happen here at the white house, since his re-election. the president and the first family return here to the white house, late yesterday. the staff was planning to have a welcome out on the south lawn, but because of bad weather, marine one could not land here, so it was a low-key arrival. what's on the president's agenda, moving forward, you've been talking about dealing with the fiscal cliff, also the president has to work on trying to unite the country after a very divisive and very expensive campaign. in addition, the president will work very hard to try to build a different relationship with members of congress. we saw him already reach out by phone to john boehner, to mitch mcconnell, also to leadership in the democratic party. so we'll see if this promise of bipartisanship will last beyond just a couple of days. >> dan lothian for us this morning. thank you, dan. let's get right to john berman with a lack at some of the other stories making news today. good morning. >> good morning, soledad. cnn is projecting that ann kirkpatrick will return to congress. she barely beat republican

the big problem right there. there would be a special election. a lot of people think that republican senator scott brown, outgoing republican senator would be the favorite. that's actually working against senator kerry's nomination for anything because you don't think that the democrats don't want to lose a seat potentially. >> that's what i was saying. >> the man who made sure our computers stay virus-free wanted for questioning in connection with a murder. this thing is a mess, too. john mcafee, of the popular anti-virus software, is in hiding after his neighbor was found shot to death in belize. police say they want to talk to mcafee but right now he is nowhere to be found. >>> republican congressman paul ryan says losing last week's election was quote, a foreign experience. but, in his first interview since his failed vp bid he said he's not dwelling on it. >> i really have no regrets at all. it was an honor to be on this ticket. it's an honor that comes to very few people. it was a well-run campaign. we made this campaign about big ideas and big issues. which is the kind of camp

by that single step. >> don't forget, of course, this is all in the context of the election which just took place, and the democrats, i think you'd have to say, feel that strike while the iron is hot, that they do have leverage, and they want to try to use that. >> the leverage is to go over the cliff, which may or may not be a wise thing in retrospect, i guess. jill dougherty for us this morning. thank you, jill, appreciate the update. other stories making news. >> a really sad story out of texas. a parade honoring military heroes ends in tragedy in midland, texas. at least four people were killed when a train slammed into a float packed with veterans and their spouses yesterday. more than a dozen other people were rushed to the hospital. we don't know what caused this crash. union pacific says the track's lights and crossing gates were working and that the train sounded its horn before the crash. >>> a look now at live pictures from the house visitors center of washington, d.c. we're expecting to see david petraeus walking through those halls at any moment on his way to a closed
